About Us

BayCare was formed in 1997 by a core group of local hospitals determined to continue providing not-for-profit health care to the Tampa Bay community. Today, BayCare has grown to an integrated system with 15 hospitals—all not-for-profit and driven by the same mission: to provide high-quality, compassionate care to all we serve.

Here for You as a Community Partner

BayCare is community-grown. We don’t have outside owners or shareholders so we can be laser-focused on providing exceptional care to the community. If someone gets sick but doesn’t have the resources to pay for treatment, BayCare, true to its not-for-profit roots, helps them out. Simply put, BayCare exists to serve the community.
